| MPX already supported multiple input devices. Which blows pretty much all 
| assumptions in user interfaces (input) out of the water. Now I've gone one 
| step further and added support for multi-touch displays. Have a look at this

| Now it seems Microsoft completely ripped the idea and created 
| Microsoft Surface.
